How can I enhance wifi speed on a 2nd computer?

Recommended Posts

I have a laptop and 2 fast computers, all three have SSDs. Currently I have TOT as an Internet provider with a package of 150/50 MB. I get those speeds on the laptop which is connected via LAN cable to the router. On the PCs I have a wifi USB antenna inserted which give me right now a mere 40/20. Pretty lousy. I think there must be a better device on sale (even on Lazada, but can't find it back now) to dramatically improve the speeds on my PCs. Can anyone help?

This afternoon I will go to TOT to increase the signal to 500/100 MB. So I would need a device which can equal the 500/100 on my PCs.

What is the model of the USB antennae? I have an ASUS USB-AC68 which gets me ~80/25 on the 2.4 ghz channel and ~75/121 on 5 ghz. My package is 100/100 if I'm not mistaken.

If possible use Ethernet cables.

 

Check that you router support 5GHz. I'm with 3BB and they supply dual band router which means there is 2 WiFi network. One on 2.4GHz and one on 5GHz. The later allow much faster speed. 

 

Post the model of computer in the thread so someone can check that they support 5GHz. 

 

If you have 5GHz wifi network and you really want to buy a USB antenna then buy one that support 5GHz. Some like AC support both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Preferably buy a known brand like TP-LINK, D-LINK, etc.

You mean me to post the model of the router not the computer, right?

Here are 2 pictures:

That looks to be a wireless N model. Get something like the one I mentioned or another Wireless AC antennae.

If your PC use USB 2 ports this will be impossible with whatever antenna or protocol.

Some people post in haste, without bothering to check the detail;

 

http://www.ztegpon.com/index.php?page=660 supports 2.4 GHz, 802.11b/g/n, so Wireless AC and 5 GHz capability will make no difference.

 

Ah you're right..

 

@Dario how long have you had this router? I got TOT Fiber just a few months ago and was given one with wireless 802.11ac support. If you go to upgrade your package, you'll need to ask them for a new router as well..

Go back to peruse your own thread...

It means: unable to enhance signal, with whatever I have or buy additionally. Problem not solved then.
